Alice Lee uses multiple techniques in her acupuncture practice.
Needling: Traditional acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles at strategic points on your body.
A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain, overall wellness, and stress management.
Cupping: The suction created from cupping causes blood vessels to expand resulting in a fresh flow of blood through the affected area. This allows more oxygen and nutrients to pass through the area, improving the healing of injuries and illness and promoting relaxation. On top of that, the increased blood flow can help flush out toxins and other blockages that may hinder healing or cause pain or stress.
Electroacupuncture: Electroacupuncture is a form of acupuncture commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Acupuncture involves using thin needles to stimulate specific pressure points of the body to resolve stagnation and promote the body’s self-healing function.
In standard acupuncture, one needle is used at each treatment point. Electroacupuncture uses two needles.
A mild electric current is passed between these two needles during treatment. This current generally applies more stimulation to acupuncture points than hand manipulation techniques that acupuncturists might use. It is an effective technique used for treating pain and other conditions.
Acupressure therapeutic massage (Tui Na): Tui Na massage can be done as a stronger deep-tissue massage or a more gentle, energetic treatment. Similar to acupuncture, Tui Na massage uses the same energy meridians and acupoints to balance the qi and blood in your body, leading to better health. Qi flowing incorrectly can cause blockages, such as poor blood circulation in the affected area.
